Abramovich takes delivery of exercise bikes to superyacht


AS if cycling around the picturesque Scottish islands wasn’t enough, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has had two exercise bikes delivered to his £1.5bn superyacht.

The bikes, costing up to £1,300 each, were spotted being loaded onto the Russian billionaire’s dinghy in Oban on Tuesday.

The bespoke bikes, made in America, are marketed as a “fluid, multi-dimensional indoor riding machine”.

Riders are able to lean, turn, steer and balance on the bikes through three planes of motion.

And it appears that Abramovich, who is currently on a cycling tour of Scotland, has taken a shine to them.

The Chelsea owner is a big cycling fan, and was recently snapped on the Isle of Bute riding a £3,000 bike.

It is believed that after completing a tour of Scotland he will sail to the south of France where he will spend the rest of his summer.

His yacht, which boasts a helicopter landing pad, a cinema, swimming pool and dance floor, was made for Abramovich in 2010.

The vessel also contains a children’s playroom, sauna, a mini-submarine and a missile defence system.

The master suite is armour-plated, has bullet-proof windows and a laser system designed to dazzle long-lens photographers.
